Two guys on a mission for good rolled through Alexandria Monday on a 1947 Monark bicycle.

They took turns riding the antique bike, which they had rescued from a landfill, and completed a blustery 60-mile trip that started near Fergus Falls.


The brave cyclists were Craig Molstad, executive director of the Fergus Falls Area Habitat for Humanity and John Aarhus, coordinator with Habitat's Re-Store.
